Title: a story behind a photo (new)
Post by: Shadows-In-Twilight on February 11, 2013, 19:32:08
hello everyone  :)

i believe some of you remember my first topic of this kind (http://www.lacrimosa.ch/forum/index.php?topic=5124.0). i was checking it today and at the end of it i read some [old] requests of reviving it some day again - so, the day has come  :)  i could have easily brought the old topic back to life, but i decided to leave it where it is - in the archive of our old gold forum - in my opinion, it's the only place where it truly belongs  :)

however, the topic might be new, but the rules remain the same  :)  everyone can join, everyone can write a poem or a story or both!  :)  deadline is March 8!

so, write a story/poem the photo whispers to your heart and soul, and share it with us. i will pick the best from both categories, and if the winners agree, i will send them the "inspiration" photo [the one below  :)  ] on their e-mail, so they can print it as big as they want  :)  ofcourse, if they want some other photo from my gallery (http://shadows-in-twilight.deviantart.com/gallery/), i will send them the one by their choice  :) 



this time the photo is the same for both options  :) 



(http://fc06.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2012/329/3/5/to_the_light_by_shadows_in_twilight-d5m3ixv.jpg)




be creative, use your imagination. listen to your heart and write what it tells you! impress me! i know you can all do it^^ you have proved it already  :P  ;D

okay, i'm in  :) interesting photo  :) I don't tend to win anything but it's interesting to take part))) what kind if story this photo tells me...

"Another random group of people was walking through the park into nowhere.
- ...148, 149, 150, 151, 152...152 poles in this fence, dad! - the boy yelled.
- That's fine, - his father replied and thought another summer had ended too fast.
"Damn it, I don't know what to talk about, ask me first, please", - a girl felt awkward on the first date.
"Damn it, I'm feeling like my sock is torn", - Her date thought. - What a wonderfully beautiful sunny day, by the way!
"You, again, dumb jerks, same shit every day! I have 150 poles! 150!"
 :)

I also wrote some little text, I love the photo! :)
As I can express myself better in German, I wrote the text in German and translated it. But I feel like it is not that beautiful, as I consider it in German. So I don't post it yet. But count me in! :)

Yay! I loved that topic!  :D

I'll go for automatic writing, since it's an excercise I enjoy a lot  :P

He looked at the red leaves above his head. It seemed that God had been bleeding all day long into the trees and he couldn't avoid wondering what had made him, the all mighty, bleed as much as a frail human. Perhaps a memory, like the one that started to pulse beneath his scap. Mamma's perfume always smelled of lavander in the silk of her blouse and pappa's glace would always seem ice-cold even if he was looking at a much younger "me" with love. Perhaps because his eyes were blue. Perhaps because he was missing someone else. It wouldn't make a difference: they were all gone now. He couldn't even remember for how long they had been gone. He couldn't even remember how he looked as a child. He was a grown man, with his own life, with his own family waiting for him to come back in a plane from the other side of the Earth. But still, there was a little pain hidden somewhere between his ribs and his spine when he thought that the house where he had grown was no longer at the end of the street where he standing now. Mamma's face had faded away in the cables of his brain with the years and all that remained of pappa was a wrist watch forever still at 3:40, in a time where they had both existed.


(oh, my, why do I always have to make everything so depresing?)

Okay, my input :P

The world was coated in tender light of the last warm days. They were going, and he sighed, listening to the birds stirring up somewhere behind him. Laziness, spilled in the hazy day, overcame him so much, that all birds knew he wasn't a threat now.
 
They were going... He sniffed the air for the barely traceable whiff of girl's perfume, reminding him of Her. Her intricately shaped lips, the spectre of Her eyecolor, the perfect geometry of Her long tender fingers...

Impatient, he jumped onto his feet and stretched. The tender light coated him too, he knew that. Almost like back then...

They were going. Soon their shadows would start growing longer and longer, until out of sight... Startled at a sudden thought, he ran for Her. Not for Her, but for the one wearing the same perfume. He ran, and ran, and ran...

The world was coated in tender light of the last warm days, growing colder and colder. He ran, feeling the approaching cold from all sides, pressing him, ran, trying to ward it off with the warmth coming from inside. Hope. Run. Hope. Run. Hope...

They were going. She was going. With another man. She had a family. She didn't need him anymore. He ran. He ran to ask. To ask one question, eating him up all these years. Only one question. One.

Hope. Run. Hope. Run. Hope...

A boy suddenly turned his head and cried out:
- Mom, look! Mom! MOM! I'm scared, mooom!
She turned Her head.   

He almost stumbled. It was She.

- Jess? Jess?! I can't believe that, Jess! Jess!
She ran towards him. Hope. Run. Hope...

She embraced him, like back then. Her perfume took all strength he had, made him whimper like a little puppy. Made him laugh and cry of happiness. Recognized.

- Jack, Jack! - She happily turned her head to the man. - Jack, we've found him! Give me the leash! Finally! I'm so happy, Jack!
Jack smiled and reached out for the all-too-well-known piece of leather.

They were going.

Der Weg ins Licht
Langsam gehe ich den Weg entlang. Es ist schön um mich her. Ich brauche keinen Wegweiser, das Licht zeigt mir den Weg. Auch andere Menschen sehe ich auf dem Weg, alle laufen dem Licht entgegen. Vom Dunkel ins Helle, vorbei an herbstlichem Wald. Die Blätter, einst saftig und grün, werden bunt und sterben, so wie alles sterben muss. Sie sind ein Spiegel meiner Selbst, erinnern mich, dass auch ich, einst grün und saftig, nun verjährt bin. Ich fühle es, ich soll nun diesen Weg gehen. Das Licht zieht mich magisch an, zieht mich vom dunkel ins Helle. Ich weiß, das helle ist gut, dort wird Gott sein. Der Weg führt mich in den Himmel, ich gehe ihn gerne.



The path to the light
Slowly I walk along the path. Everything around me is so beautiful. I don’t need a guidepost, the light will direct me rightly. There are also other people walking the same path, everybody is running to meet the light. From the dark to the brightness, past an autumn-like forest. The leaves, once green and lush, turn colorful and die, just as everything has to die. They are a mirror of myself, remember me, that also I, once green and alive, have to die. I am feeling it, I have to walk this path. The light is alluring magically and attracts me from the dark to the brightness. I know, the light is the right way, it is God. The path is the way to heaven, I willingly follow.

Here it is my story:

Oh, this light! This light that makes my heart beat faster! This light that warms my soul! Now I’m crying. Long tears are falling down on my face, now, thinking of him… I’m just human, after all, no matter how much I try to say I’m different. I have my memories, my dreams, thoughts, pains and wishes. I have all of them, just like every one! I’m only human, no matter how much I can endure!
This light! I remember him every day and his scent haunts me almost every single moment of my life. I’m struggling, I’m desperately trying to find out a way to chase his trace, his shadow, his ghost, his memory…, I want this beautiful creature he is out of my mind! Everything is so long gone, but his presence is still here, within me!
This light! This light makes the world smaller, and so it is indeed, this light makes the world look different. I don’t know why, but right now I’m looking at me just like being in a movie. I’m walking in this incredible light and I don’t know where I’m going, I don’t know for sure… What I know is that I have to stop here, to take the bus. To take a bus. So I stopped. I’m looking around and I can’t stop wondering about this light… the air is condensed, it is like honey, deeply flavored.
The air is now solid all over me, but I can still breathe… There are people here, and this makes me extremely nervous. So, I pull my hood down and I turn on my heels. I’ll go right there … to this little square. Look! There’s a little bench, I’ll go there… No, another one, behind that tree… and there’s somebody sitting. Oh, I hate this! I just want a little place to be alone. It gets on my nerves, this situation! I say this in French in my mind, I always love to say this in French: “Il me tape sur les nerfs!” Well, I can’t remember exactly how to spell this, but … I simply adore the way it sounds! It makes me feel better.
Now, the next frame of my movie. The distant bench. The man sitting there. Really, it doesn’t matter! I’ll go to sit for a while, anyway. He is not looking at me, but I can see, my presence disturbed him. That’s quite nice! Hm! I’m annoying, isn’t it?! So, he should go! Just go! Well, in my dreams! No, of course he is not leaving! And, even worse, he wants to start talking! Actually, he is trying to open his mouth, but I won’t let him. I’m looking at me asking to keep silence, with the deepest and the most serious voice ever used to express a prayer in this world! I cannot bear a single word! I just want to be alone with him, that one in my thoughts! Dear God, everything depends on this! And the stranger doesn’t want to shut up! I’m terrified, he’s speaking. I think my head will simply crack. Once again, just like in a movie, I’m waiting to see his words hitting me, but he…he is asking me to talk! He wants me to talk, to say something, anything: “Just break the silence, lady.” And I don’t know, I swear I don’t know, I can’t find any reason for this, but I start talking. And I talk, and talk and talk…and then, I suddenly stop: “In a dream, last night, I was one of the saddest people in the world”. I get up from the bench and I leave.
The air is liquefied in my eyes, but I’m still breathing… And in this blinding light, I can see the stranger following me. He is holding my hand in deep silence.
On the empty road, the air is ethereal now.  In the light, we are still walking … all of us, two strangers and forever with them, their shadows.



My dears, you are all amazing! Great to read your creations!  :)

Here is my text ^^

That morning I woke up earlier than usually, but his eyes crossed my mind as usually (actually as always). I got up immediately, thinking of the list of things and stuff I had to do; just daily routine, nonsense for me. I opened the window of my bedroom, foggy weather. I sighed.
Finally I got out of my home.
Suddenly, emotions overwhelmed me and I felt I couldn't breath anymore: I had to sit in a close bench. Far behind me I saw a forest, a deep dark forest that attracted all my attention: this darkness reminded me of his eyes -oh, no, his eyes on my mind again - and my heart started beating fast. I felt the need of walking and not stopping until I was in this forest. I walked, walked and walked and discovered a strange path: it was so bright: the sunlight conbined with the autumn colours was creating such a warm image on me. A bit further I could see strange people walking happily through the path. There was also a wall between this path and the forest: I looked at it quite sad; why a wall between this comfortable path and the deep and dark forest I wanted to go through? Why always a wall betweem what is comfortable and supposed to be meant for me and what I really want?
I could not anymore....What an irony. I left me fall to the floor, over my knees. I started to cry. This landscape was as my own life: the beautiful path, as my daily life where everything seemed to be okay: had a work, friends, money, a family; and the forest was him, whom I really wanted, and a life with him: a mistery, unknown, difficult , rather impossible to achieve. But it is what I longed for, it is what my heart bleeded for. The wall was of course the impossibility, the distance between him and me.

After some minutes crying myself out I decided to cross. No matter what, no matter how comfortable the path was. I went to the wall then and tried to jump over it: I (obviously) failed, but this did not mean I stopped trying it: I tried, again and again, my legs and arms hurt already, with little bleeding wounds, but finally I could cross it. I fell on the other side of the wall. Then I was in front of the way to the forest. I looked for the last time to the path....And went into the woods finally. I walked through it anxiously, looking for him: he had to be here somewhere! My heart beated desperate:  I thought I heard his voice through the wind. I followed that sound....and, as my heart expected, there was he. Staring at me, his deep eyes on me: those eyes that could not leave me. I looked at him too: I needed him to hold me, to make these nightmare end, to take me with him forever to nowhere.
- You knew and know that this can't be posible, this is just a dream - he said to me with his poetical voice.
- It is not: you are my path, my real path and I came here for you
- I am sorry, love is not meant for you and me.
He disappeared.
Suddenly.
I was there, standing alone, in the dark forest; I cried, shouted his name, cried, calling him. But nothing happened.

Will I be trapped forever in this forest?

The alarm clock sounds, I wake up, and get into the path again...

Here comes my story! It's a bit short, hope you like it! ;D

It was a normal afternoon, we went for a walk in the garden. We walked and walked, a lot, and we walked through the trees, guided only by the wind. Until a moment when we did not know exactly where we were. It wasn't the same garden. Suddenly everything was wrapped in a soft orange light. Only silence remained in each of us, it was almost a magical feeling, as if we could somehow understand what was happening. Time passed, maybe very slowly or maybe too fast. Then began to getting dark, in the distance we could see just a lighted way, we all knew that we had to follow. Though no one knew where that path would lead, or what things would be beyond, the only thing we were sure of was that we should go into it because there would be something for us, then together we walk to the light.

- You knew and know that this can't be posible, this is just a dream - he said to me with his poetical voice.
- It is not: you are my path, my real path and I came here for you
- I am sorry, love is not meant for you and me.
He disappeared.
Suddenly.
I was there, standing alone, in the dark forest; I cried, shouted his name, cried, calling him. But nothing happened.

Will I be trapped forever in this forest?

The alarm clock sounds, I wake up, and get into the path again...

I enjoyed reading this!

Stop me now or I'll rant about the book I'm reading about cooperative art in the times of the internet.  ::)  (This is a perfect example for the text, but much more fun than the book)
